When it comes to highly detailed and realistic models, Fire Replicas has once again delivered with a stunning representation of the in-use Tysons Truck 429 from the Fairfax County fire and rescue department. Based on the Pierce® Velocity® chassis, this tractor drawn aerial is fitted with a 4-section 100’ ladder and powered by a Detroit DD13 engine delivering 500hp.
The model has an impressive size, measuring 14.5” x 2.5” x 3” and has been constructed from 587 individual parts in high def resin, wire, stainless steel, rubber and other composites which result in a museum quality replica exacting in every detail to the original. As with the other models in the range, the custom packaging consisting of a fully lined base with Perspex cover and photo-etched name plate depicting the department and truck name.
The tractor unit has a pronounced front grill with the stars & stripes flag graphic placed behind the chromed frame with a textured diamond plate finish on all standing areas. Clear and tinted plastic lenses for the lighting are used to good effect, as are the various grab handles located along the sides of the body. The clear front and side windows allow for glimpses of the interior, where the grey finished surround encases the driver’s station. You can also make out the crew seating in the rear of the cabin.
The rear chassis has a number of compartments, with the door frames accentuated with silver pin lines and photo-etch door handles which really do look the part. The design allows for storage of extension ladders on both sides and even here, attention to detail is spot on. Access to the tiller cabin is to the rear on the left side only, and the access steps are textured with grab rails finished with silver joints for total realism. The tiller cabin has a fully finished interior with both clear and tinted windows fitted to the frame. Even here, exacting details include the photo-etch screen wiper, grab rails and a number of small lights, all expertly installed.
One of the most interesting aspects of the replica is the way the ladder has been constructed. True to scale, the thickness of the stainless steel ladder sections is an impressive 0.6mm with a water tube running along the underside, terminating with the spray nozzle at the tip of the ladder which has orange painted hand rails. The platform to which the ladder is attached has tiny safety chains and railings which all have the joints painted in silver which again shows the exacting levels of realism. The application of the white stripes along the sides of the model is flawless with a number of tiny safety and instructional labels located throughout the model, even the extension markings have been printed onto the ladder while the Tysons Corner and Fairfax County emblems are accurately replicated on the sides of the tractor.
The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department trains firefighters and paramedics to provide a full complement of fire suppression, technical rescue, swift water rescue, hazardous materials, and emergency medical services, including basic and advanced life support and emergency medical transportation–it is a career and volunteer all-hazards department. Since its humble beginning in July 1949, the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department has evolved from ten skilled “drivers” to a complex agency responsible for meeting the emergency needs of over one million residents. Today, more than 1,330 uniformed men and women operate from 38 fire and rescue stations strategically positioned throughout Fairfax County. Additionally, about 170 full-time civilians provide key support functions from headquarters and other locations. The Fairfax County Fire and Rescue Department operates on three separate 24-hour rotation shifts. Each shift is led by a Deputy Fire Operations Chief. The county is separated geographically into seven battalions, each managed by a battalion management team of a Battalion Fire Chief and EMS Captain. Fire suppression personnel and paramedics work in tandem to ensure the highest level of safety and care possible for the residents of Fairfax County.

It has been characterized as a quintessential example of an edge city. The population was 19,627 as of the 2010 census.
This is not a toy and not suitable for children under the age of 14. This highly detailed scale model contains small, intricate pieces that may present a choking hazard.
Fire Replica's recent holiday promotion made this one too good to pass up! Comparing the model to numerous photos of the real one online, they have captured every detail to perfection once again. I am happy to have this tiller in my collection along with the Kern County unit - both are winners! Mike Quinn on 26th Feb 2017
This is now my second TDA from Fire Replicas, the details on the Fairfax ladder are great, the decals on this truck add to it character. Thanks for doing the TDA's they really are sharp looking. JoeO on 20th Feb 2017
Superb workmanship. This model is a delight to display and has become a talking point with visitors (considering I have over 200 fire appliances in my collection, that says something). Only problem with the model is deciding whether to display it in its display cover or among my other models. Nathan Van Der Meulen on 26th Jan 2017
Completely Breathtaking!!! D. Haley on 11th Jan 2017
I have been an avid collector of Fire / EMS models since I was very young, and am absolutely thrilled with this model. There really is nothing else that compares to the amount of detail, and craftsmanship that goes into these pieces. I cannot wait to receive all the others I have pre-ordered, and can guarantee that they will rest proudly on my shelves for a very long time. Fire - Replicas, great job! I suggest you consider making gift cards a purchasable item! Tyler T. on 2nd Jun 2016
The Workmanship Is Unbelievable! robbie maietta on 23rd May 2016
I reviewed Fairfax County Truck 429 for a major diecast magazine, and for a resin model it's build quality, accuracy, and quality of finish rates on par or better to top diecast productions.The aerial ladder detail far exceeds anything I've seen in any ladder truck in any medium. Most importantly, models of this quality embody a corps d'espy ; big and tough for the Pierce Velocity, sleek, fast and clean for Kern County's Quantum. Beautiful! Dan Townsend on 21st Apr 2016
Words cannot convey my appreciation for the detail as well as the personal thank you note when I opened my new truck model. My company insures Fairfax fire and I am going to be giving a driver education class in April and actual sitting in the original Tysons Truck 429. I am blown away by the detail of your replica. I expect to purchase more items as they are unveiled. Well done!!!

The new Fire Replicas Truck 429 is nothing short of a masterpiece. From the paint, details, and graphics to the exquisite aerial ladder, this model more than lives up to its star billing in the model press. The level of craftsmanship clearly justifies the price and value of this model. Truck 429 is nothing short of spectacular, and rightly fuels anticipation of new releases to come.

This Ladder Truck Is Amazing! robbie on 25th Feb 2016
This is the second model obtained and as the first one it is outstanding and for the price it is well worth the purchase. It will make an excellent addition to my collection and I hope the rigs will keep on coming. Thank you! Unknown on 15th Feb 2016
Seeing the actual model after opening the box exceeded my expectations. Every little detail was captured like the excellent graphics and trim pieces.One feature that I do like is that the tiller section is attached to the cab so there is no fumbling around trying to stick the pin in place to connect the two pieces. I do like that the model is attached to the base and that there are no loose trim pieces that need gluing to the model like rear view mirrors. Unknown on 18th Jan 2016
As a collector for 45 years I can honestly say that fire replicas' product is the best I've seen.
A Museum Quality production that will satisfy the standards of any serious fire engine collector.
Attention to detail from marketing, to production, to packaging is superior to anything that I have ever encountered. This collector toy will not disappoint any purchaser. Unknown on 9th Jan 2016
Of all the collectable replicas I have this one by far is the most detailed of them all. I recommend this product to every collector and I'm sure you won't be disappointed. Jim on 7th Jan 2016
I was impressed as to how much care was put into making sure that the piece was well packaged for shipping. This is a great model. Quality is amazing. The display case is also a nice addition. Very well crafted. If anyone is on the fence and is not sure about ordering it, well jump on the other side of the fence and order it. You will not be disappointed. Michael on 5th Jan 2016

As a collector of other replica models I found this one to be the finest I've purchased. The detail is second to none and in some cases hard to believe it was possible. The case is substantial which is needed for a replica of this caliber. I will continue to watch for others I want to buy. Tim on 29th Dec 2015
I am so excited that a new, high quality model fire truck company is starting up. Ever since Code3 shut its doors, I have been missing these. The Fairfax model Tiller is an amazing replica. It is extremely detailed and looks great on my shelf next to the old Code3's. I have never seen the exact truck in person, but this model seems to be a great replica. These are higher priced than previous companies, but are also a larger scale and seem to be higher quality. I am hoping to save my pennies for some more models. Chad Simons on 26th Dec 2015
I have been a collector of high-quality fire apparatus replicas for many years. I have always been extremely demanding about the accuracy, quality and detail of my models. For me, the pinnacle had been TWH. I was disappointed when they went out of business and doubted whether anyone would be able to pick up the torch. I stand corrected.
Fire Replicas Fairfax County T429 is an incredible model! While lacking the operating features of some TWH models, Fire Replicas has upped the ante by insuring all details are truly 100% to scale, including and especially the aerial sections. These are so intricate and well executed as to be amazing. The overall fit and finish is flawless and the details are spectacular. It truly looks as if the actual rig was "scaled down" to 1/50th. The use of tiny lenses to represent the various lights on the rig is extremely well done, as are etched metal parts such as slam-locks on the compartments, roof-top A/C grilles, detail on the fifth wheel and all over the rig. Every time I look at the model, I catch a new detail I didn't see before.
This model was a "must-have" for me for a variety of reasons. I have always been a fan of Fairfax County rigs as I have a strong family connection to the department. My grandfather and two uncles served with Fairfax County for years and my cousin is currently the officer on the very rig that Fire Replicas produced! Not only did one of my uncles serve, but he is also the manufacturer of Roto-Ray emergency lights, like the one that graces the front of T429 as well as countless other rigs in the area and around the nation.
Some expressed concern about the lack of chromed headlight bezels and wheels. In my opinion, these do not really detract from the appearance at all. Sometimes, chrome-plated plastic or metal parts on a small scale model have a tendency to "grab" too much attention, or be too bright in various light sources. Fire Replicas finish on these parts does not overwhelm the model and looks extremely good in different light sources both natural and artificial. My only concern was the use of decals as opposed to pad-printed tampos and painted details (such as the piano hinges on the trailer's compartment doors), strictly from a longevity standpoint. The decals utilized, however, are crisp, clear and legible regardless of how tiny they are.
This model has truly become the "crown jewel" in my collection. I was excited that Fire Replicas produced a Fairfax County rig especially one with a tie to my family! I'm hoping to see E429's piece replicated in the future to go along with this simply outstanding tiller! Mike Slepetz on 26th Dec 2015
I ordered the the truck as a gift. The person who I gave this to was thrilled. He is a fireman and a collector. It was the perfect gift. Karen on 25th Dec 2015
